AUGUST 5 – 12 2017 | ULTIMATE YOGA HOLIDAY IN TUSCANY WITH BELLA BETULIA
We come together on the mat to build balance, strength, and flexibility.
If you have ever desired to take your practice to a deeper level, why not join us for a Yoga Holiday in one of the most beautiful places on earth! Come practice with us during the day in Tuscany’s archetypal landscapes and in the evenings, enjoy local wine while eating delicious local cuisine.
For 7 nights we will be staying at Il Borghino, a Tuscan retreat villa nestled on a hilltop with incredible views overlooking the charming medieval town of Lucca. Il Borghino has many inviting accommodations including elegant Tuscan style rooms, “L’Olivo” – a hub for us all to gather to enjoy meals together, a wood-fired pizza oven, several outdoor terraces, a salt water swimming pool and a sauna.
Organized activities included during the retreat:
A bike and walking tour of the ancient town of Lucca with a local guide (2 – 3 hours)
A wine tasting excursion to an exquisite local winery – we go by foot!
Cooking class (2-3 hrs) at the villa with a wonderful local cook
Puccini Opera in Lucca. For opera lovers, Puccini was born in Lucca and every night, you can listen to one hour of arias from this famous composer.
There will also be plenty of free time for scenic walks, enjoying an in-house massage, a day trip to the breathtaking coastal villages of Cinque Terre or simply relaxing around the villa’s outdoor salt-water pool.
Yoga will be taught inside the yoga studio where all props are provided for you, as well as outside on the terrace overlooking the magnificent views. Yoga sessions include sustained poses as well as vinyasa flow and will be at mixed levels offering varying degrees of intensity so that everyone has the opportunity to advance their practice in an enjoyable way.
